Cities that will drown in 100 years

Espresso Logo By Erin Daley of Espresso | Slide 1 of 31: As carbon emissions continue to warm the planet and melt glaciers around the world, the oceans are steadily rising. According to Climate Central, the expected increases in water levels are locked in, meaning they cannot be changed. If we continue with business as usual, without drastically reducing our carbon emissions, our world could become 4°C warmer. That degree of warming could lock in a median of 8.9 metres of sea-level rise, flooding lands that are home to 470 to 760 million people around the world.
